Legendary Italian football figure Fabio Capello, who has managed AC Milan, Roma and Juventus in the past, was at awe at what happened at Stamford Bridge in the game between Chelsea and Juventus.

Chelsea defeated Juventus 4-0 at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night, and it was total domination from Thomas Tuchel’s side.

Capello has claimed that Chelsea gave Juventus a football lesson and also the entire Serie A.

“I think this was a real lesson in football from Chelsea,” Capello told Sky Sport Italia.

“Let’s take Liverpool for example, they play aggressively and vertically.

“And tonight we saw Chelsea never pass the ball backwards. They never start from the back, instead they are always proactive, always forward, no passes to the goalkeeper.

“These are rhythms that the Italian league is no longer used to. There is a big difference in speed and quality compared to our league.

“There is another pressure. Then here are the tackles, you enter hard, the referee does not whistle for fouls that would be whistled here [in Serie A].

“In Italy you play too much with the goalkeeper. I think they are two German coaches, maybe we need to learn from them and update ourselves.

“A coach used to say, ‘how you train is you play’. When there is great intensity and competitive spirit and you are not used to it, it becomes difficult. When you train with not enough rhythm in the end you get these results in Europe.”
